Ok, get ready for this one.
I have no interest in yet another committee designed to tell my church how to minister to the convention or the association. If you were relevant, you would not need to tell me so.
The ministerial guild I propose is an Idea. It is an Idea that suggests a healthy minister would help a church be healthy, or healthier.
However, I am not interested in a program designed to minister to this or that church in this or that category. I am very interested in ministry to ministers (senior pastors or other staff) and their families. There are low-cost, high-service ways to do this ministry.
Healthy ministers might make healthier churches. Regardless, we ought to be looking for ways to help make healthier ministers. Word is getting out and most of it is positive. I know this is true because of the calls I get. I also know it is true because of the denominational persons and their sycophants who are using this as an opportunity to make renewed personal attacks on me. Frankly, I have heard it before. I have no fear left. Bring it on.
